We have a test environment that operates on top of Windows Azure infrastructure, including a Virtual Machine (Windows Server 2008 R2) operating Couchbase 2.0.1. It maintains a few memcached buckets and Couchbase disk buckets.
During initial setup it was based on the IP address allocated to the virtual machine (e.g. 10.0.0.4). Now we are trying to reconfigure the setup to be based on the computer hostname (e.g. CBL2).
After following instructions to stop/unregister the service and make manual file changes before re-registering and starting
The startup seemed to run fine and the http localhost:8091 page was accessible albeit showing blank configuration (lost the old cluster config). Upon trying to start a new cluster it would be stuck spinning the loading icon before giving up with “Attention - save request failed because of timeout” “Got no response from save request”
I further note that attempting to load the admin page via http CBL2:8091 would show the loading icon perpetually unlike localhost which at least showed the setup intro page.
There is no error visible from Windows event logs; where else can we draw clues what has gone wrong?
